The Early Access was part of your purchase of the game early. It was for showing your loyalty and faith in the game and obviously that faith is being shaken. We shouldn't be happy just because they gave us early access, it was included with our purchase.
As far as your two types of people go i think it more accurately looks a little something like this:
1 The ones that expected issues like this to be addressed prior to a week before launch and beyond launch. The ones that have legitimate concerns and issues with the service that they PAID for.
2 The ones that accept everything a franchise feeds them as glorious ambrosia. Sure they don't like the breakdown in service but they'll be damned if anyone else gets to voice their displeasure about it. SE is god, Lightning Rules, and they love paying extra for the ending to an RPG via DLC.
The early access was a BONUS to players who bought the game, or to legacy players. It doesn't cost more to buy the game with early access. It doesn't cost more to buy the game with the pre-order items. They were included as a BONUS, as in, something above and beyond the normal game copy. You didn't pay one cent more for early access. If you bought the game again, having already owned it, for early access, that's not their fault. They didn't force you to. You could have just waited three days to play. Stop with the entitled attitude.
As to your two types of people, your use of hyperbole is both ridiculous and uncalled for. It's completely acceptable to be bummed that servers are down and that there are some errors plaguing people in-game. It's another thing entirely to constantly whine about it, then make blanket statements about how anyone who isn't whining is just a white knight who must love everything SE has ever done. I've disliked the last few installments of FF, I hate DLC, I don't like Lightning, yet I'm magically ok with the game having a few bugs in early access and having some maintenance to fix the issues. Know why? Because service started yesterday, it's free, and I've already thoroughly enjoyed the time I have spent in-game. As others have mentioned, go for a walk, go to the store, take a course on managing your aggression and entitlement... something. Sheesh. Edited, Aug 25th 2013 12:46pm by BartelX
